thanks to the secretaries for tlioir
enthusinsin and faithful service.
The motion wns graciously made
and unanimously passed.
Tlie committee tlien proceeded
to take up the recommendations
included in Mr. Warner's report.
11 was decided to change the date
of 1 lie financial year from May 1
to January 1 and to adopt a bud
get for the year ISM!). Mr. War
ner's report recommended a bud
get of 7000 to continue the work
as it is now organized. After a
brief discussion it was decided to
adopt a budget of $7200. The
committee .felt that the services of
the Y now merited an increase in
the present subscription and an
extension of the list of contribut
ors. A plan was adopted for se
curing this liioney. The treasurer
announced that one party had al
ready doubled his annual sub
script ion. It war further agreed
to promote a paid membership
campaign on 1 lie standard priv
ilege scale of the International
Committee of the Y. M. C. A.
Indications from a wide range
of interests seem to make certain
that the Y. M. C. A. is wanted by
the people of Kauai The secre
taries are asked to do more than
is humanly possible for two men
and (heir services were never
more welcome in the schools and
on the plantations than now.
Plantation managers' were sug
gesting the employment of more
trained secretaries. The Nation
al War Work Council has issued
concrete recommendations for an
intensive program of service to
the returning soldiers and Kauai
County Association is planning
to tidopt every possible measure
to give the soldier a welcome
home and to make life on the plan
tation as attractive as it has been
in the army.
The following facts gleaned
from the reports of the Kauai
secretaries are significant: "Deft
nite assistance was given in the
various war work campaigns, in
cluding the 4th Liberty Loan,
United War Work, Thrift Stamp
and French Orphan campaigns
and the U. S. Hoys Working Re
serve. The secretaries made
speeches and transported speak
ers from abroad to every part of
the island, covering a combined
mileage of over 15000 miles." In
connection with his office as ex
ecutive secretary, and director of
the Hoys' Working IJeserve, Mr.
Warner stated that he had visited
till of the schools on Kauai with
but two exceptions, four times
each. The total amount raised for
the United War Work was .21,
000, nearly $1,000 of which con
sisted of pledges from the school
children. "Four special meetings
for Ihe members of the Hoys'
Working IJeserve were arranged
respectively at llanalei, Kilauea,
Liliue and Makaweli, with a com
bined attendance of 800. Prof.
Harper at these gatherings told
of his experiences at Chateau
Thierry sis a Y secretary and ex
hibited curios from the battle
field. At these meetings, and sub
sequently, a total of .r2!l badges
were awarded the hoys and girls.
National enrollment week was ob
served beginning Jan. 20th by the
enrollment of young toilers for
next summer vacation. The en
rollment will go over 1 000 this
year on Kauai."
Emphasis has been put on edu
cational work. Mr. Warner ex
plained ii plan or standardization
of night schools being tried out
this year. Classes have been es
tablished tit Ilunnmnulu, Lihue,
Kipu, I'uhi, Koloa, Knlaheo, 11a
napepo, Makaweli, Waimca, and
Kekaha, with it total enrollment
since October 1 of 22.") students
and 2.'5 teachers. Kesults thus far
are very gratifying, but it is ex
pected that the classes will re
ceive new impetus when the sol
diers return. The annual gather
ing of teachers, Mr. Warner an
nounced, was to take place at
Lihue on Saturday, Jan. 25. lie
also told of his trip to Honolulu
during the holidays, visiting thej
Kauai bovs at Schoficld and Cast-
Ueligious work is conducted in
some of the night schools and in
several clubs in the camps while
both secretaries assist in church
work about the island wherever
possible. Hoth reports made de
clarations of loyalty and service
in the Y. M. C. A. as an agency of
the Christian church. A Sunday
Hvening Club for all young men
has just been organized at Lihue.
The work among the Filipinos
is progressing coinmendably in 14
camps under the leadership of Mr.
Walworth. Athletics and social
features by night and day bring
cheer to the weary toilers in the
cane fields. The motion picture
generator installed in Mr. Wal
worth's Ford, the thoughtful gift
of Mrs. Hans Isenberg, has be
come a decided success, not only
for the exhibition of motion pic
tures themselves, but in generat
ing electric lights in the camps
and club houses, making evening
games an added source of merri
ment. Mr. Walworth's schedule
includes work at the following
places: McHryde Camp C and 7,
Grove Farm, Malumalu and l'uhi,
Sam Mahelona Hospital,, Home
stead Portuguese and Filipinos,
Lawai", Hawaiian Sugar Co.
Camps 2 and 4, Mana, Koloa, Ke
Kaha, Wuimea, Lihue and Hana-maulu.

Death of Mrs. Shrewsbury
Tho news of the death of Mrs.
Ella Catherine Shrewsbury, moth
er of Mrs. Mesick of Uauamaulu,
reached Kauai late last week.
Mrs. Shrewsbury was born in
Pensvlvania but went out to Ore
gon with her parents and grand
parents while still an infant, ar
riving there about the time gold
was discovered in California. She
and Dr. Nathaniel Shrewsbury
were married in 1S(5 and three
years later located in Santa Bar
bara, where her husband died
many years ago, and which has
been her place of residence nearly
As the circumstances attending
her deafli were somewhat unusual
and as the newspapers have stated
that it wis due to a fire in Mrs.
Shrewsbury s apartments, we
wish to correct whatever false im
pression has been made by stat
ing that it is probable that Mrs.
Shrewsburv knew nothing of the
existence of the tire that after
wards consumed the building in
which she died. She had been an
invalid tor some tune but was
able with some effort to. move
about in her room. She was car
ried out before the fire had touch
ed her and, when found, her hands
were restfullv folded and the
smile on her face indicated that
her thought at the moment of her
death, was a pleasant one. There
was no disarrangement of her
clothing or of the rug that rested
on her knees, indicating that she
felt no alarm and had made not
1 he slightest effort to leave her
chair. Witnesses at the inquest
stated that they judged that Mrs.
Shrewsbury had passed beyond
long before she was in danger
from the fire.

The Honolulu Iron Works has
secured contracts for the con
struction and erection of four
large new factories in the Philip
pines of a capacity of 1,500 tons

Owing to the serious illness of
her mother Miss Castro, the com
munity nurse, will go to the coast
at the end of the month on a leave
of absence. She has given excel
lent satisfaction, and has won
much favor with all classes.
Everyone will be glad to see
her back again. Mrs. M. Me
Oregor will take her place.
